Learning Path React Native

So you did some tutorial in React Native and you would like to move to the next level, now what?

I made a small list of what you need to learn to build any app using React Native.


  1. Learn how to start a new React Native project (https://facebook.github.io/react-native/docs/getting-started.html)
  2. Run it on ios simulator, on android emulator, on a real iPhone device and on a real Android device, with and without debugging enabled.
  3. Learn how to upgrade a React Native project (https://github.com/ncuillery/rn-diff)
  4. Learn how to add a package to your project (yarn add react-native-…)
  5. Learn how to add a package that has a native dependency (for instance, https://github.com/airbnb/react-native-maps, https://github.com/evollu/react-native-fcm) — avoid cocoapods
  6. Learn how to use fetch to get data from your backend

Learn Navigation

  1. React Navigation — https://github.com/react-community/react-navigation
  2. Tab bar navigation (Sliding Tab navigation)
  3. Drawer navigation (drawer menu)
  4. Alert bar
  5. Setup a boilerplate that has a drawer + tab navigation

7. Challenge — Bottom tab navigation for IOS and Top Sliding Tab navigation for Android

Learn to do a Login/Register Flow

  1. 3 screen before login (launch, login, register) — follow this: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/brand-lovers-beleza-e-maquiagem/id1094374278?mt=8
  2. At least one screen after login/register is done
  3. do it with redux
  4. do it without redux

Learn common mobile patterns

  1. do a form using https://github.com/gcanti/tcomb-form-native
  2. do the same form without tcomb-form-native
  3. Work with ListView, show a list of items with and without sections
  4. implement a modal using <Modal /> component from React Native core
  5. change navigation transition style
  6. work with social logins (facebook, google, twitter and so on)
  7. work with animations: https://egghead.io/courses/animate-react-native-ui-elements; http://browniefed.com/react-native-animation-book/
  8. implement push notification
  9. work with camera roll
  10. work with maps
  11. Learn Relay/Apollo

There is always more to learn!

I've also made a gist in a checklist format, so you can fork it and mark your progress — https://gist.github.com/sibelius/e1f4fdb690735e49f75bbd959bd2fbc2
